Lane Library just added Developmental Biology by Scott F. Gilbert and Michael J. F. into its catalog.
A classic gets a new coauthor and a new approach, adds innovative electronic supplement, and creates a new textbook for those teaching Developmental Biology to a new generation.
New to this edition
- An increased emphasis on stem cells, which are covered extensively and early in the book.
- Sex determination and gametogenesis, instead of being near the end of the volume, are up front, prior to fertilization.
- Greatly expanded coverage of neural development, comprising a unit unto itself.
- Coverage of new experiments on morphogenesis and differentiation, as well as new techniques such as CRISPR.
